The Divine Descent
Once Dada was sitting
in a satsang (spiritual gathering) which he had arranged
in honor of his guru. In between he got up and went to
his room, which he had never done in his life, for it
was a sign of disrespect. The following is the description
of one of the persons who had the good fortune of being
“The eyes of Dada had become completely red, as
if a red light was glowing inside him. His whole face
had become red, and even the room was now illumined, with
reddish, otherworldly glow. And something began to happen
inside me too! I felt bodiless! How can I describe it?
I was there and yet I wasn’t. I was simply light.
My mind felt clearer than it ever had been. I heard a
sound from above. It was as if through the mouth of Dada,
Someone else was speaking! That voice was so very quiet
at first, then it grew louder and louder. It was stunning,
not frightening, but simply awe-inspiring. The voice spoke
Nijanand Rupam Shivoham Shivoham
Gyan Swarupam Shivoham Shivoham
Prakash Swarupam Shivoham Shivoham
Nijanand Swarup, Gyan Swarup, Prakash Swarup
I am the Blissful Self, I am Shiva; I am Shiva ….
I am the Knowledgeful Self, I am Shiva; I am Shiva …
I am the Luminous Self, I am Shiva; I am Shiva …
I am the Form of Self, the Form of Knowledge, the Form
“To this day, I cannot forget that voice, nor that
scene. The atmosphere was electric, more than realm and
my condition of feeling as if without a body is still
alive in my memory. As soon as Dada opened his eyes, he
started looking around with great wonder. Whatever he
had seen, had jolted to the core of his being”.
During that time, Dada saw tremendous Light and Power
which told ‘You have to make such a world’.
And he had the vision of an altogether new world. But
he did not know how that world was to be made. How shall
he be able to make such a world?
Dada fell into deep, deep thought. He immersed himself
in the work of solving the mystery of this unparalleled
event. ‘Who was that ?’ What kind of power
could give him such visions, such knowledge, such self-realisation?.
Gradually he unraveled the logic and the implications
of it all; the secret was unveiled to his astounded intellect.
Based on our real life experiences we clearly know that
it was God, the Supreme Soul, Shiva, Himself, had entered
into his body. It was God who had revealed the truth about
the coming destruction, and of the establishment of the
heavenly world which would then follow. And it was God
Himself who had given the sign that he, Dada, was to be
His medium and the engine for creating such a divine world.
